Today, I was out horse riding. Some say that riding isn’t a sport, but I can swear that chasing after a horse that has just thrown you off is really tiring! FML

People who have never gone on more than a tourist trail ride. I think there are many ways to ride that would not qualify as a sport in my personal opinion, but many are. Even just riding around in an arena (actually working toward proper form for both horse and rider, not just bumping around as a passenger) WILL work up a good sweat for both of you. I grew up 3 day eventing and will be getting back into it with my Fjord gelding (who is a Thoroughbred in an adorable, yet athletic Fjord body) and that is most definitely a sport. It takes so much more than people think it does. Even just riding an eventer on the flat takes more work than people think because a lot of eventing horses are just a little bit crazy. They're generally not the plugs you can put anyone on. It's kind of heartbreaking, actually, to tell the little kids at the barn that they can't ride my "Frozen pony" because he's too high energy.

Whoever said horse back riding isn't a sport has probably never rode before or just went on one of those trail rides with a leader. Tell them to spend one day riding and taking care of it and they'll change their mind real fast
